Graylog-collector-sidecar - no way to clean filebeat registry file

(Andrea) #1

atm with graylog-collector-sidecar and filebeat as backend, there’s no way to clean up filebeat registry file (/var/cache/graylog/collector-sidecar/filebeat/data/registry) to prevent it from grows up in time, because in
Graylog -> System/Collectors -> Manage Configurations -> Configure Beats Inputs,
there is no clean_inactive options (ref.

After a long time and expecially with a large number of inputs, filebeat registry file may be a little problem…

May i ask if there is another way (or trick) to clean it up without scheduling a job that stops/clean/start it?

Many thanks in advance, and tnx a lot for Graylog, i love it! :slight_smile:
